On Tuesday May 14, 2013, Historic Seattle hosts its Fifth Annual Historic Preservation Awards Ceremony at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford to acknowledge recent successes in the preservation and heritage fields locally. This year we introduce the Beth Chave Historic Preservation Award in honor of our friend and colleague who served as the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board Coordinator for many years.

The event begins at 5:30 pm and ends at 8:00 pm. Enjoy an evening of food and drink and celebrate the award recipients. Join with old and new friends and colleagues who share a passion for preservation. Seattle City Council President will speak about preservation in Seattle. Jeffrey Ochsner introduces our 2013 Preservation Award recipients. Big thanks to the event’s Lead Sponsor KeyBank, with additional support from 4Culture.

This year, we’re raffling off some great prizes including a one-night stay at the Sorrento Hotel and dinner for two at the Hunt Club; Tom Douglas restaurant gift certificates; and some stellar Washington wine. Raffle tickets are $20 each.
